Famous Round Barn

Hundred years barn. No AC inside but lots of old memorabilia and a souvenir shop. During the summer it's really hot. You can see all the bricks from hundred years ago, and also pictures of barns around the world.

Round Barn upstairs.

World's Largest Round Barn

There's no elevator and very steep stairs to get to the upstairs area of the historic barn. The dome ceiling is constructed in a basket weave design. Pretty impressive. I think they rent it out for special events.

"Butch" at the Arcadia Round Barn

Butch does tours Tuesday-Saturday. Another great character is Sam -- dressed in cowboy gear, he works on Mondays. Sam also owns the old filling station down Route 66.

Red Round Barn

For the past few months the Red Round Barn -- a traditional stop for travelers cruising Route 66 -- has been at the center of a simmering controversy. A big city media company bought a tiny plot of land next to the barn and erected a 40-foot-tall billboard on it. The Arcadia historical society says that the billboard blocks views of the barn from Route 66 and gets into everyone's photos. The big city media company said it will gladly move the billboard -- if its opponents pay for it. The barn boosters say they don't have that kind of money.
